Part of the Time of the Signs Strand
NO TICKETS CURRENTLY AVAILABLE, PLEASE CHECK BACK AT A LATER DATE
This lecture shines a spotlight on the acclaimed and groundbreaking female directors who shaped American cinema, but were often pushed to the margins of the overwhelmingly male-dominated film industry and cinema canon. In this richly illustrated talk, Dr Malgorzata Bugaj (University of Edinburgh) will offer an overview of the works of Kathryn Bigelow, Susan Seidelman and Penelope Spheeris, discussing their careers, formal styles and thematic concerns.
Presented as part of the ‘An Insight into EIFF’ course, run by the University of Edinburgh’s Centre for Open Learning.
